  1. passed my licence test on saturday at ride-tek, mel did an excellent job and it was a fun (though very long) day. learnt a fair bit as well which is the most important thing :) 360-something days until i get a bike that isn't artificially inflated in price due to the 250cc restriction :twisted:

    oh and thanks a lot to glipschitz for mentioning he had a fellow retrider along with him on his course! :oops: :roll: :p

  2. Congrats!!!.................................
  3. Congrats to you. There's now a whole gammut of us that have passed our tests at Ride-Tek in the last few weeks...:LOL:
    BTW I owe Mel two Bourbon and Colas for knocking down a couple of witches hats while doing the slaloms...:LOL:
  4. goodone guys! :D

    I should get off mine and do mine shortly as I've noticed my 3 months wait has expired.

    Is the discount thing still happening :?:

  5. Discount applies at MTA, Dandenong.

    They are a Netrider sponsor / partner thingy company.
  6. Yet you list a CBR1000RR (of which i didnt think existed.. ah well) as your bike... interesting. :wink:

    Counting the days on my restrictions aswell.... counting the days.
    (Well that... and shopping around ;) )
  7. Back on topic , well done slyfox :D .
  8. The normal discount also applies at Ride-Tek, they are a Netrider sponsor as well.

    The course at Ride-Tek is $230 but if you book and complete in June/July then it's an extra special deal of only $180 if you are a Netrider member.

    See Banner Link at top of one of the pages.
  9. thanks Knightrider

    Koma, its also called a FIREBLADE! On of the most popular motorcycles in Australia last year.
    As for my choice, I must of forgotten to put down i'm not a law abiding goody two shoes and don't ride it close to it's designed purpose (YET!!)
    in my profile.

  12. My Licence test at MTA cost me $220 cause being blonde I forgot to ask for my netrider 10% discount but I reckon in testing me they earn't every cent! How much is my licence worth? everything!

  15. Congratulations Sly Fox
    Well Ridden & Well Earned
  16. YOU CAN DO IT!!!!!!!!! actuall wait.... no no NO NO, give me the fireblade :D
  17. unscathed!

    if you check the date on this thread you'll see 12 months to the day (yesterday) i got my full licence, so as of one hour ago i'm off my restrictions! woooooooo hoooooooooo! freaking FINALLY!! *insert church bells tolling here.*

    it really doesn't go quickly when you spend the year looking at a calendar waiting until your can take your mates and girlfriend for a ride on the back. :wink:

    not to mention riding something a fraction bigger than a 250. :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:

    the best news from my restricted experience is that it wasn't a costly one crash or injury wise;

    1st and only crash/bingle was on my 50cc scooter (a message from god telling me to get a real bike!) :p amusingly my first ever netrider post was a report on it. no injury, $250 for a resprayed as new fairing and some backyard welding to fix the left mirror stalk. lesson learnt: concentrate, don't ride angry.

    a 2km/h drop, grabbed front brake on a wet slope and front slipped out, grabbed it on the way down and scuffed the fairings. i went to find out how much for touch up paint and my local friendly respray shop quoted me $150 for the entire fairing resprayed :shock: as it was so cheap i got that done, it's now as good as new.

    and that's it. $400 for paint touch ups and no injuries, i count myself very lucky of course and hope said luck holds out in the future.

    riding without restrictions here i come!

    :woot: :biker:
  18. congrats kiddo :)
    and lol for waking me up that time to ask the "crash queen" what to do :LOL:
    what sin the sights for a new bike????
  19. :applause: Congratulations, it must feel good to be free!
  20. Congrats, and keep up the good stats.
